Vintage Ruppert Beer ad
I found this photo on Waymarking.com posted by HaLiJuSaPa. Below is their description:

Long Description:
The ad is for Ruppert Beer, a major New York area brewery during the first half of the 20th century. It’s founder, Col. Jacob Ruppert, owned the New York Yankees during their 1920’s dynasty and is the person who bought Babe Ruth in 1919 from Harry Frazee’s Boston Red Sox and began “the curse of the Bambino”

Until the building in front of it was knocked down a few years ago, this ad was “covered up”.

  1. WOW!! OK, I remember Knickerbocker Beer! I admit it. It might have been the first beer I ever tasted, when as a wee lad, I tasted my Dad’s beer while he was munching on pizza – this may have been in 1960.
